Help Wanted: Connecting Study Abroad with Career

Jason D. Patent and Lauren Moloney–Egnatios

Friday April 27, 2018, 1-2 pm Eastern time

This is Webinar #4 in:

Intercultural Competence Development through Education Abroad: Key Concepts, Practical Applications (A series of five webinars on intercultural learning through education abroad, Spring Semester 2018)

Have you heard this one before? Or anything like it? “Border-crossing skills / intercultural skills / the ability to work effectively across cultures is the key to employability in this globalized 21st Century.” In sending our students abroad and assuring them that the choice to go abroad is good for their career, we are making an implicit promise. How prepared are we to deliver?

In reality the connections aren’t always easy to make, and small staffs and budgets and crunched student schedules too often mean that students aren’t offered the chance to distill lessons from abroad that might look valuable to future potential employers.

In this session, participants will learn how to apply the LITE process — developed by the Robertson Center for Intercultural Leadership at International House Berkeley. LITE provides a powerful strengths-based framework for advisors and students to work together to unearth career-relevant learning from abroad, and to help students translate this learning into terms that will be valued by future employers — ultimately leading to enhanced employability outcomes.
